Off the top of my head I'd say in you want to look in south Charlotte - neighborhoods like Cotswold, South Park, Sherwood Forest, Raintree, Sardis Forest - all very established areas with mature yards, lush trees, very desirable to live in

Do you have zipcodes for these areas? I have found it hard to search online without a zipcode. Also can anyone recommend Dilworth? With the real estate market the way it is for $500 can we get something updated and big enough for a family of 4?

Also does anyone have any info on the Dore school? Our youngest child will need a private school for dyslexia.

There are a few in Dilworth over 1950 sq. ft. that will work for you pricewise. Loves suggested some great neighborhoods -- please know, however, that you may not be able to walk to shopping/restaurants from some of those neighborhoods.

We would definitely want a walkable town with restaurants, parks, and shops. A good strong sense of community is a big plus as well.

Try Hembstead - I think about 25 years old. Very mature neighborhood. Walk across the road to Arboretum. Has walking trails. ELE, South Charlotte Middle and Providence High zoned. Drive on Providence to Dore Academy. Houses are on the expensive side but you might just squeeze in there because of the economic climate. Great community. 28273 is zip. direct message me if you need more info.

Another idea...the Cotswold area has housing in your range, good schools, and if you're close enough to the intersection of Randolph and Sharon Amity, plenty of shops and restaurants. For older neighborhoods, the one that has Barwick Rd off Sharon Amity. Whitby is a little further down with much newer houses.
Good luck to you!
